By September 15th, the number of out-of-zone spaces will be released to the community.
Wednesday, October 11th, 2023, will be the closing date for ALL applications. No late applications will be considered.
If we receive more applications than the number of available spaces, a ballot will be held on Wednesday, October 18th, 2023, to determine who will receive the spaces according to the priority order as described below.
Effective from Term 1 2022
The guidelines for development and operation of enrolment schemes are issued under Schedule 20 section 4 of the Education and Training Act 2020 (formerly section11G (3) of the Education Act 1989) for the purpose of describing the basis on which the Secretary’s powers in relation to enrolment schemes will be exercised.
All students who live within the home zone described below and/or shown on the attached map shall be entitled to enrol at the school.
Starting at the corner of Whitney Street and New Windsor Road, the boundary travels west along New Windsor Road and then Chalmers Street until the railway line. The boundary then travels south down the railway line (addresses east of the railway line included) until Olympic Park, traveling down the eastern side of the park until 73 Wolverton Road. The zone boundary then travels southeast along Miranda Reserve, including houses to the north of the reserve on Miranda Street and Otira Street. The boundary then follows the perimeter of Matata Street and Covic Avenue, including all houses on these roads. The boundary then travels down Blockhouse Bay Road until Terry Street (including Blockhouse Bay Road addresses with odd numbers 199-369 and with even numbers 210-468). The zone then follows Terry Street east (even addresses 2-88 only included), and then travels north along Whitney Street (even addresses 168-212 included, odd addresses 5-189 included) until New Windsor Road.
All residential addresses on included sides of boundary roads and all no exit roads off included sides of boundary roads are included in the zone unless otherwise stated.
Proof of residence within the home zone will be required.
Each year, applications for enrolment in the following year from in-zone students will be sought by a date which will be published in a daily or community newspaper circulating in the area served by the school. This will enable the board to assess the number of places which can be made available to students who live outside the home zone.
This priority category is not applicable at this school because the school does not run a Special programme approved by the Secretary.
Out of Zone Enrolments
Each year the board will determine the number of places which are likely to be available in the following year for the enrolment of students who live outside the home zone. The board will publish this information by notice in a daily or community newspaper circulating in the area served by the school. The notice will indicate how applications are to be made and will specify a date by which all applications must be received.
Applications for enrolment will be processed in the following order of priority:
First Priority will be given to students who have been accepted for enrolment in the following special programme(s) run by the school and approved by the Secretary for Education. This priority category is not applicable at this school because the school does not run a special programme approved by the Secretary
Second Priority will be given to applicants who are siblings of current students.
Third Priority will be given to applicants who are siblings of former students.
Fourth Priority will be given to any applicant who is a child of a former student of the school.
Fifth Priority will be given to any applicant who is either a child of an employee of the board of the school or a child of a member of the board of the school.
Sixth Priority will be given to all other applicants.
If there are more applicants in the second, third, fourth, fifth, or sixth priority groups than there are places available, selection within the priority group must be by ballot conducted in accordance with instructions issued the Secretary under Schedule 20 section 4 of the Education and Training Act 2020 (formerly section11G (3) of the Education Act 1989). Parents will be informed of the date of any ballot by notice in a daily or community newspaper circulating in the area served by the school.
